With so many families becoming dog owners during lockdown, this could be the first time many people will be marking Mother’s Day with a present from their puppy.
Here’s a selection of dog-themed treats selected by Team Dogs for every budget that will show just how much dog mummies mean to us all.

We all love a statement mug, and you might as well drink from one that speaks your mind when it comes to your darling dog. Not On The High Street has this bone china cup for £12.50, where the message shows exactly where your priorities lie.
There’s plenty of other pet-specific offerings on the site, including a 150-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle with your dog’s photo for £35 that will help to banish any future lockdown blues, and a pillowcase set for £30 that doesn’t quibble over whether your pet gets to sleep on the bed or not.
We’re so smitten with both of these offerings from Joules that it might be hard to stick to just one gift. Both feature a cheeky Dachshund in a Breton top against a bold gold background that’s bound to bring smiles, whatever the weather.
The Isla scarf is £19.95 and will lift any outfit, while the packaway coat (£44.95) can be stashed in your bag for any length of dog walk, and with taped seams it's waterproof if you and your dog do get caught in any showers.

If your puppy is still at the stage where it finds feet fascinating, then these socks from Getting Personal might be just the message you need to send. While in theory you can customise these to share any message with your DD, we heartily agree with the site’s suggestions of ‘Happy Mother’s Day Mummy’ on one foot and ‘I promise not to chew these, Evie’ on the other. At just £13.99 you’ll get an idea if your dog has learnt to read yet.
And if it’s climbing on furniture that’s the problem instead, you might like a cushion (£19.95) where you can enter your own family name to endorse the message: ‘If you want the best seat in the Baker House... you’ll have to move the dog.’

We know dogs and chocolate don’t usually mix, but Mum won’t be able to resist these adorable decorated dog faces at £8 from Hotel Chocolat if you’re working on a canine-themed gift box. Find them here.

After a long day of puppy mothering, what better way to relax than lighting a candle and brewing up a nice big bowl of tea? Yes, bowl because this ‘lapdog souchong’ blend is for dogs to drink, rather than humans. The pyramid tea bags contain a dog-friendly blend of calendula, dill, dandelion and ginseng, and John Lewis & Partners also sells an Earl Greyhound version. Both are £3.99 per tin.
But mum deserves a treat too, and Orla Kiely’s signature dog-shaped candle will fill your room with comforting fig and cedar wood for £26.
It’s those dashing Dachshunds again, this time on a bright and reversible duvet set featuring on-trend ochre colour and a fun sausage dog print, to delight mum.
£14 for a double set in polycotton from Wilko. Find the duvet set here.
And finally, we’ve long been fans of Radley bags and it’s not just because of their Scottie dog logo and the gorgeous dogs they include on their Instagram posts.
Along with the luxurious bags and purses in so many tempting sizes and colours, you could be super-practical and buy mum an activity tracker for £30 to help measure how far those dog walks are taking her. Find the tracker here.
